Default Re: I Need Help.......

it says:

This device is working properly.

If you are having problems with this device, click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter.

so i do troubleshooter and it leads me to open volume control and when i do that it says that there is no sound device

could it possibly be a driver that i need for the motherboard?

It sounds like you need your drivers, do you have the driver cd that came with your motherboard?

are you on a new windows install or have you been running your computer for a while?

Did the sound all of the sudden go out or was it working and then go out?

if you have the driver, you need to find the folder where the driver file is located. It should be under something like a folder like

Drivers>>XP>>file.??

The soundcard you had "installed" is the SB live right? If so...that Unknown media device was it. That means you had it connected fine. Your drivers are just not updated.

try to install the SB live...onboard devices can be a pain if you do not have the drivers
